Highlights of this cruise:

Lisbon, Portugal
Spread out over seven hills on the north of the River Tagus, Lisbon is a delightful mix of palaces, art-nouveau cafés, museums, gardens, ancient castles and splendid bridges. Don’t miss a visit to the Centro Commercial Colombo – the biggest shopping mall on the Iberian Peninsula!

Funchal, Madeira
Located off the coast of Africa, Funchal has a timeless charm, delightfully enhanced by a benign climate that fills this 'floating garden' with the year-round colours and perfumes of subtropical flowers and fruit.

Bridgetown, Barbados
Barbados has a balmy, tropical climate, making this very British Caribbean island a favourite with well-heeled tourists. Admire the impressive stalactites and stalagmites in Harrison’s Cave; sail the gorgeous azure waters in search of sea turtles; or simply relax on one of the many sandy beaches, soaking up the laid-back atmosphere.

Panama Canal

One of the world's greatest engineering feats, the canal stretches over 48 miles and takes 8 hours to travel, giving you plenty of time to admire this remarkable man-made wonder and the beautiful natural surroundings.

Papeete, Tahiti

The bustling city of Papeete is home to the world’s only Pearl Museum and an array of natural treasures including the Faarumai Waterfalls and spring garden of Vaipahi.

Mystery Island, Vanuatu
The origins and history of this beautiful uninhabited island are - as the name would suggest - a mystery. Completely unspoilt, this incredible tropical paradise is barely a kilometre long and just 200 metres wide with stretches of glorious golden beaches, windswept palm trees and a coral reef abundant with thousands of fish, in a deep blue, calm sea.

Sydney, Australia
Sydney, Australia is one of the world's most exciting, must-visit modern cities. Home to the famous Harbour Bridge and Opera House - two of the most iconic structures on Earth - it is easy to understand why Sydney is so highly regarded. A timeless, charming city, you will fall in love with this cosmopolitan metropolis as soon as you step off the ship.
